“If Google didn’t act, we face a draconian future. One man, one company, one device would control our future,” Vic Gundotra, vice president of engineering of Google, kick started the Day 2 Keynote at Google IO conference with those precious words. Continuing further he said “If you believe in openness and choice, welcome to Android.”
Google has already announced some great features for its next Android OS 2.2 Froyo, a giant step ahead of eclair.
We compared the latest iPhone OS 4.0 vs. Android 2.2 Froyo back-to-back and without a doubt, Android is leading. With a great move from Google, All eyes are on Apple’s upcoming WWDC 2010 (June 7th). Apple has already announced that CEO Steve Jobs will be delivering the Keynote in San Francisco.
Every one is questioning, and one Apple Fan couldn’t hold it back and mailed Steve Jobs asking “I hope you have some good WWDC announcements to blow [Google] out of the water” .
Every one acknowledges, Gizmodo may have spoiled the surprise this year by leaking the iPhone HD /4g prototype. However, over an email exchange with a customer, Jobs said the Event would still pack a punch.
Apart from the new iPhone Hardware, Apple is expected to reveal full details on its nextgen Os iPhone OS 4.0 which was previewed back in march with support for multitasking and 100s of other features.
Apple vs. Google Heat is sky high, and there doesn’t seem to be any chance that it would be coming down. Will Apple regain the lead in the innovation of smartphone market? If Steve says so, we believe it. After all, Apple developed the device that was lonely at the top for 3 long years, its time for them to regain the position.
It would be interesting to watch it live, hold back as we make Live video stream links available on the day: WWDC 2009 June 7th, stay tuned.
